<br /><br />How is this working out? Do they find obscure stuff you love? Do they ever (unknowingly) buy you the same book?<br /><br />There are used bookstores in the USA, but you have to make an effort to seek them out.<br /><br />[/quote] <br />Well, so far they are just promising to do this (I think it's called "humouring Carol" and is something my family does very well) . If I double up I'll just sell it to one of the other students doing my Latin course at Uni (or keep a spare in the car in case I get caught in a traffic jam....) We have a few 2nd hand book shops in Adelaide and they do get Latin books in from time to time. The education system here was very "British" up until recently, probably a lot longer than it was in England, so Latin was definitely on the school menu (esp. if you went to a private school). So school textbooks are still around.<br />I have now issued instructions to my family to buy anything in Latin they find in 2nd hand bookshops, school fetes, sales etc.
